What most homeschool parents won't admit is how expensive it can be to teach at home. I think I'm going to do a series on ways to save money and find bargains.
All the furniture in this room, plus some you don't see, was less than $20. We found it at a surplus auction at The University of Kentucky. If interested in bargain shopping at auctions, I recommend surplus auctions over the junk filled ones with personal sellers. Usually they want too much for something that should be in a yard sale. Surplus goes for any price, no minimum.
Try local colleges, board of education, police department or library for sales. This one comes every 2-3 months. Next time we're going for a microscope, tv or exercise equipment.
Here are early shots of the room. We've done some more wall decorations since this was taken and started filling the book shelves a bit more.
